I've done a lot of sewing this year,
and finished a load of things off. I didn't realise how much till I made a list the other night
and surprised even myself!! I'm not sure if I should post this,
because I really don't want anyone to feel discouraged.
I really do sew for my own mental health, it's been a bit stressful this year
and I've been getting up early most mornings and sewing for an hour before the day starts,
it really does show how a bit of dedicated time will get things done.
I've made six giant 24" cushions and four 18" cushions for our lounge.
Most useful thing I've made this year I think. Used all the time by the kiddies.
Four little quilts for little people.
Three of these were swaps and one was a commission.
Two giant stars, one for my SIL and one for Miriam (swap for two dresses)
Two St Louis 16 patch quilts, one for Sarah who is going to Africa
and one for Dee from those of us who love her!
Two raffles quilts, one for Class 5 at Rudolf Steiner School and one for Independence Games.
One quilt refurbished for Cat, one finished off for our Pastor Amy
and one for Sophie.
I think 23 pillowcases. I've got these down to a fine art now!
Embroidered two pairs of shoes for Annie and her friend.
A quilt for Rachel, a quilt for Archie, a quilt bound finally for Liz
and a bright and cheerful quilt for Cam.
A picnic rug for Helen, a Scrappy Trip-Along quilt for our bed
a wall hanging commisioned (2.8 x 2.2m) and a kantha quilt for the caravan.
Three scrap vomit quilts (I love these, I'm going to make a Christmas one too)
Five hottie covers, finished a vintage sheet quilt, made a Cam doll
and then a bunch of random stuff....
I've knitted two Griffin's, one for Reuben and one for Annie
(and have two more half finished)
I made a pink quilt just because, I made 7 name tags for the bloggy conference
I've made 10 dresses for Annie, 12 drawstring pouches, 6 zipper pouches
a block for Sammy's quilt, a wee mini quilt for Kirsty,
five lavender sachets, embroidered some wee hoops,
mended four pairs of jeans and altered two pairs of curtains.
Please don't hate me. I just plod away getting things done.
Some of these things took no time, some of them were almost done before the year began.
Maybe I'm a bit obsessed, I hate sitting doing nothing.
I think I might go and have a little lie down now!
